Regional : Strengthening the Asia Pacific Public Electronic Procurement Network (Phase 2)

Sovereign Project | 52109-002

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) is a follow-up to the successfully implemented TA for an Asia Pacific Public Electronic Procurement Network and to phase 1 of the TA for Strengthening the Asia Pacific Public Electronic Procurement Network. This TA will further support cooperation between the developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and with other regional procurement networks, including the Inter-American Network on Government Procurement. It will continue to support the implementation of electronic government procurement (e-GP), including assessments of e-GP systems, security audits, procurement, contract management, use of artificial intelligence, and machine learning.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The rapid digitalization of government services by most ADB DMCs requires benchmarking with best practices, which annual knowledge sharing events and conferences can help achieve.

ADB is called upon to provide knowledge support to DMCs' integrated digital government agendas, and their efforts to maintain highly performing, sustainable, efficient, and transparent government procurement systems. The TA will therefore contribute to the continuing improvement of institutional governance in ADB DMCs.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
